67 residents of an assisted living facility had to be evacuated after their building flooded Saturday night. Meadowmere Southport on 85th street and Sheridan Road began flooding from a pipe in the attic connected to the building’s sprinkler system. The water starting leaking at around 6:30 PM and the residents had to find another place to stay. Most stayed with relatives or friends until they were able to return last night.
